I’m thinking of buying my first pair of Jimmy Choo, they are Bing 100, can anyone help with the following questions?

Can you wear Jimmy Choo Bing if the ground is wet? They have a leather sole and I’ve heard there will be ruined immediately on the first wear if the ground is wet. Not sure how true this is but read one horror story about a lady at a wedding when it was wet, not raining and she said her Sole peeled off her shoe overnight.

Can you wear them if it’s raining? I’m guessing not if it’s raining due to the leather Sole. However, if it is wet and you wear them, is that okay?

What does everyone do with the soles on their designer shoes if they are light coloured leather? Do you just enjoy them, it is what it is and you get them resolved when needed?

Or are you getting them resolved before you even wear them?

The SA I’ve been messaging said about putting a protection layer on the bottom of the shoes, but I have no idea what she is talking about and she hasn’t explained. Does anyone know what this is?


Final question, I’m UK based, does anyone know where I can buy Jimmy Choo shoes from with free delivery and free returns apart from the Jimmy Choo website? Ie Farfetch, Ssense? Most of these websites charge a return of £20 a pair or they get bad reviews online

TIA
 
Light soled leather heels in the rain can darken; get slippery; get damaged with salt or improper drying.

You can add a rubber coated half sole which might help. Or a stick on shoe sole protector like a stickie.

Personally, I would avoid wearing when wet outside due to fear of falling

I believe Harrods sells Jimmy Choo.

Thank you.

I will have a look at the shoe sole protector, stickie

I live in the UK, it’s wet outside a lot :lol:. Maybe I’ll just be buying these to look at.:lol:
